So looked on google for flowers that looked like that. I think that’s a Japanese anemone flower. According to google wild rabbits (and deer) generally stay away from it because it has a fragrance they find unappealing. It’s also a good thing they don’t want to eat it, because apparently anemone plants are toxic to buns and other pets according to a few websites.

Bunnies can eat dandelions though! So if you have those around, they’d be a good treat for your bun~

They have got dandelion leaves I bought this morning. I've got dandelion root on order. They like dried marigold.

I got some dried roses and marigolds this morning. The ready made forages are safe to use. I've also got dandelion root and leaves. And a summer mix and a salad bowl with dried carrot and cucumber pieces (mostly leaves).
There is the worry also of flower food and things.
Better safe than sorry. x

Organic dandelion leaves are a major component of the diet of my two rabbits. Since both of my lovelies are a bit diffident with respect to other salad greens, they provide a relatively low oxalate level for them, unlike other staples such as kale, broccoli, rabe and collard greens. Here in the Sacramento area (Northern California), I can purchase a bundle for 3 USD which provides enough for three or four feedings for both of them.

I bet your rabbits love the dried marigolds!
